2018 Movies on the Roof

Movies on the Roof is a private movie festival run by Laura Lanford and Thomas Rammer. We screen classic American cinema Tuesday evenings during summer on a rooftop in Printer's Row.

Week 7: THE BLUES BROTHERS

Tomorrow night is the final screening of our 2016 season, and we're going out with a bang!  After years of impassioned requests from MotR regulars, The Blues Brothers will finally be on our big screen!

On the superslim chance that you don't know every line by heart, this is the quintessential Chicago movie. Opening at Joliet prison, this romping musical is chock full of rock and roll cameos, fantastic music, and plenty of in-jokes to share with the rest of the roof!
 

To get you pumped, please enjoy this Lego version of the chase through Dixie Square Mall.
